Art in Support of Endangered Species

Initiated and currently run by artists in South Africa, led by visual artist Janet Botes, this project is launching as a group exhibition entitled VERGE at the Knysna Art Gallery. As part of the exhibition we are partnering with local businesses, scientists and other local initiatives to:

  • increase our impact, and
  • bring different people together to learn, share and support new understandings, ideas and solutions towards the protection of species in our country.

One of our key partners include the Knysna Basin Project whose work includes important research and education efforts around the endemic and endangered Knysna Seahorse. The impetus for this project was a seed planted by a key member of the Vegan Society of South Africa, as well as course material by SANecosystems.
